National Debt Ceiling Cartoon – New Washington Budget Calculations

The worldwide attention to the United States budget ceiling crisis, well, drew the attention enough to cause this twoons.com creation!

The cartoon shows the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, DC, on a spring morning. There are four cartoon word-bubbles, saying:

  1. Pizza Bill = $200
    • [ for staffing overnight bill rewrite ]
  2. Switching My Vote = $25,000
    • [ selling out to a lobbyist greater cause ]
  3. Nailing A Debt Deal = $x,000,000,000,000
    • [ sorry for the small delay! ]
  4. Getting re-elected next year because no one remembers this screw-up = PRICELE$$!
(in other words, PRICELESS!)

The cartoon can be embedded using our special embed code.

Happiest When Tweeting?

moods and modes of Social Media

Today’s twoon is inspired by people who seem to be happiest when they communicate via tweets.

Text description of today’s twoon: 3 image groups under the title “Moods & Modes”. Left group is a smiley face that is frowning and under the face is an icon of an envelope, and the word Postal. Middle group is a smiley face with a flat mouth that is not smiling nor frowning, and under the face is a computer icon with the word “Email”. Right group is a smiling smiley face, and under it is a hand making the “Ok” sign and the word “Tweeting”.

 
 
 

No Tweeting Zone

No tweeting zone (or twittering on twitter)

Worse than the twilight zone?

Today’s cartoon is inspired by senseless hunting for valid parking spaces! And, also inspired by the rumor that some workplaces block access to sites such as Twitter, Plurk, Yammer, and other microblogging services.  So, during a normal work-week some places can seem to be sort of a “no tweet zone”. (Except, as advised by many, if one can access other sites or use software such as Tweetdeck or others listed here on Twitter.

Text description of twoon: A mock-up of a street sign that says in large letters ‘No Tweeting Zone‘, and below it in smaller letters ‘Permit holders excepted‘,  ‘9:00am – 5:00pm M-F‘ and ‘Max Fine $100 or 3 Months Online Community Service“.

Wisdom Of Cows

Tweeting News: Today we learned of a million-dollar tweeting scheme, something about the Twitterati and about how to follow sports teams on Twitter.

And ranking by news articles… 37,000 or so articles mentioned Twitter, 690 on FriendFeed, 80-ish about Yammer, 44 Jaiku, 33 about Plurk, 11 dealing with Pownce, and none about Twoons (yet).

Text Description of today’s Twoon cartoon: Colorful cartoon drawing of a cow with brown droppings, with the headling ‘Mweet’ and tag lines ‘Don’t follow too close to this one!’ and ‘Wisdom of Cows’

Dante’s Twitter Circle – No Un-Follow

Dante's circle of twitter followers
Drawing of a sea of people crawling in a bleak landscape, with one person saying to another “You’re in Dante’s Twitter Circle, where there is no un-follow, only follow.”

Tweeting News: A large book advance, said to be over $10,000, has been given for a upcoming book on tweets.  And, perhaps categorized under reputation management tools, BackTweets allows searching of cloaked & shortened urls used in tweets.  And a twitter hack from this week seems to have been small in scope and duration.
